We recently got a new addition to help with creating fun decorations...a Cricut machine. (Big thanks to Erin for finding us a sweet deal online!) A Cricut is an electronic cutter that allows you to get creative results at the touch of a button. Basically you plug it in, pick your cartridge (font style), choose from your design, add paper and push cut. The machine cuts out letters, designs, whatever you program it to do...amazing!
For our first adventure with the Cricut, instead of cutting paper we used vinyl and has a sticky back. We cut out a "C" and some shapes and the word "Thankful" and then stuck those letters on our pumpkins!
